South West Florida Real Estate News-North Port-Port Charlotte-Venice-Englewood-Punta Gorda



Maybe everyone else out there knew this, but I just discovered what a difference using different effects in visual tours to go from photo to photo makes.  

When you go to each individual photo, you can select the way that window closes and goes to the next. I try to use ones that are not too distracting inside and maybe one a little different when I go to the outside photos or to a different section of the property,  My favorites are wipe clockwise and counterclockwise.  

You can also set how long the photo is viewed. I try to give enough time to read the description. You can also select the music and crop the photo.  

If you get your photos out of order or take a better one later or think of a new description after the tour is published online, you can still go to the website and make any changes to the photos you like. Watch out on those panoramic views though. If the photos don't line up well, you may have a Dr. Seuss house. Always preview your tour before posting.  

Have fun with it! You are the director of your own movie.

What a world we live in when we stop to go oooohhhh shiiiinny.  And just as happy as you are that you found this, your clients and buyers will be even happier.  Because as you said, it keeps attention. 

Now add some music to the same shows and your photo and a company logo.  Not on the MLS ones but your web site and watch the client oooohhh shiiinny.  It's not a bad thing or a bad comment.  Just a fact of life that the Human eye picks up movement and the brain picks up different. 

Good job.
